I wasn’t quite sure what to make of Lawrence Hennessey at the start and I found that I kept changing my opinion of him as I worked my way through the book. When the story starts, he is in a relationship that has almost completely broken down and he is the father of a young girl. Something happens which threatens to change his life for ever and not in a good way. In a way Lawrence and his behaviour made me feel as though I wanted to shake him by the shoulders at times. Given what he is accused of, he shouldn’t be doing half of the things that he does and he inevitably ends up in trouble or ends up making things worse for himself.
I have to be honest and say straightaway that ‘A Black Widow’s Web’ is not the easiest of reads. I don’t mean that in a negative sense or to sound critical about the way in which the book is written. Some of the subject matter in the story is particularly graphic and horrific. I didn’t let that put me off though. I am a huge fan of all things crime and particularly a huge fan of ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ so I treated reading this book as I would watching an episode of the aforementioned series. I hope that makes sense.
It didn’t take me long at all to get into this story. In fact by the time I got to the end of the first dozen or so pages, I knew that I would find it nigh on impossible to put the book down. I had my own theories as to what was going to happen and I had to keep reading to see if I was anywhere near the truth or I had the wrong end of the stick entirely. The pages turned over at a rate of knots as I worked my way through the story. All too quickly I reached the end of ‘A Black Widow’s Web’. I found ‘A Black Widow’s Web’ to be an unputdownable, gripping and tense read which certainly kept me guessing and which kept me on the edge of my seat.
‘A Black Widow’s Web’ is extremely well written. As I mention above, there are some pretty shocking themes in the book but the author has written about them sensitively and with compassion. The author has one of those writing styles that is easy to get used to and easy to get along with. Reading ‘A Black Widow’s Web’ felt like being on one hell of a scary and unpredictable rollercoaster ride with several twists and turns along the way.
In short, I really enjoyed reading ‘A Black Widow’s Web’ and I would recommend it to other readers. I will certainly be reading more of Phil’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
It was thrilling, a real page turner, that was so compelling. I was holding my breath just watching Lawrence’s life fall apart.
Each chapter was fast paced, with a great plot, that left me still thinking about the book long after I'd finished it.
